Grant of $25,000 to a Georgia nonprofit organization or business to benefit individuals with disabilities. Funding is intended for the development of a coalition to advocate for improvements in State policy to expand opportunities for people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The GCDD serves as an advocate for persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. The mission of the GCDD is to advance social change, public policy, and innovative practices that increase opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities and families to thrive where they live, learn, work, play, and worship in Georgia’s communities. The Council achieves its mission through public policy research and analysis, promoting advocacy, public relations, and funding programs that support best practices and community building.

Through its funding, the GCDD works to increase the capacities and resources of public and private non-profit entities and others to develop a comprehensive community system that responds to the choices, capabilities, and needs of persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families. The purpose of Council grants are to expand best practices and contribute to system-wide changes that support the rights of people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their full inclusion as community members. Recipients of Council grants are expected to be ongoing partners in bringing about change.
